Greetings on the occasion of the celebration of Eid'l Fitr

8 August 2013

I join our Muslim brothers, the Muslim-Filipino community, and the whole Islamic world in celebrating this great feast of Eid'l Fitr.

This celebration reminds you that the significance of brotherhood and amity transcends the month of fasting, and has to be continuously fostered in order to sustain an atmosphere of peace and harmony among the people of our community, and more importantly, of our country.

May the spirit of Eid'l Fitr be felt among your homes, and may you be exemplars of unity, as you nurture the values of patience and humility among yourselves and your children.

Eid Mubarak!
